In same boat, but thinking only 245 or 255/55

265/65 look beefy!

I'm swapping to 20s once these factory tires go bad. 19s are just an oddball size.....

my daughter has a 2010 Tiggie and man do I want to get her a Taos...does IT have an extending armrest??
I had to wait for the s/o to get home since I wasn't sure. I can confirm the Taos DOES NOT have an extending armrest. Guess VW decided not a single suv needs it.

My recommendation is go the opposite direction.

The car came with 19's so I just swapped the tires over to the englishtowns but now the car is sitting on the Austin's from my GTI and I wish I had from 19 to 18 sooner. The ride is so much smoother on the 225/50/18.

I'm actually debating going 17" next and getting a tire with a nice fat sidewall.

Oh on the R I went 18s quick. 255/35r18. So much better ride. The tiguan has enough wheel arch room and suspension that I think some 20s with a 255/40 should be about right.

17's on SUVs?

18's on Rs?

Too many of you guys prioritize function over form.

For shame.

Uhhhhhh.........

Trying to figure out what tire I want to use on these wheels. Those pictured are 265/65/18 Yokohama geolanders that I picked up off Craigslist for cheap just to test fit, too bad the guy only had two of them.

Did you see this post?

Big fat tires on a suv IS form. The function is gravy on top.

D. Gage.....where you at in VA?

I am LOVING that tire size look the more I stare at the pics......what size wheels are those though?
Stafford. Wheels are 18x9 ET45 with 15/20 spacers in the pics. This wheel/tire combo is 13lbs lighter PER CORNER vs the stock wheel and tire.

Alright.....OEM wheel on my '23 Tiggie is 18", 235/55.

Would going 255/55 look bad, since it's not an 8.5" wheel?
